I am having the same issue. I was a free lancer with UpWork a few years ago but removed my account because I got hired on full time at a place near where I lived. I attempted to start a new account last week but I am getting an error code that states my phone number is still in use.
Thank you for your time!
I just tryed to verify my phone number too, but I have the same experience - Message that this number is used by anther account. And few weeks before that, every time I was tying to verify my number, message about technical problems would appear.
How to verify my number?
Thank you in advance,
It looks like you have an old account with the same credentials. The Customer Support Team will look into this and reach out to you directly to resolve this.
